This is a great
collection of recent Carvin guitars, with some very unusual and interesting
features, and some beautiful finishes.
First up is this totally
unique 2006 model DC135M. John dreamt up this unique color -
dubbed Lemon-Lime (or sometimes "lizardburst"), which is vintage yellow
with an emerald green burst. Like Carvin's Dragonburst finish,
which was also created by a customer, several other instruments have
been ordered with this finish, and it may become a standard option at
features include a flamed maple fingerboard with abalone dots, a
mahogany body and black hardware.
is John's 2005 CT6M (below). It's finished in deep triple-step Tiger's
Eye on quilted maple with matching headstock. What's unique about this
one is that it has a one-piece mahogany body (the standard is two-piece).
In addition, it has a birdseye maple fingerboard with abalone dots, black
hardware, and zebra (black/cream) pickups, with an M22SD in the bridge
This C66T Contour
appeared in one of Carvin's catalogs, and why not? It's
finished in Umber Stain with Sunsetburst edges on flamed maple,
and has a mahogany body. But take a look at the neck
(below) - an unusual and rare highly flamed ample was used for
the entire neck, making this C66T that much nicer. Other
features include a Wilkinson tremolo and black hardware.
This 2004 Bolt
Plus T is another looker. It's finished in Umber Stain on
flamed maple, and has an alder body. Other features
include a Wilkinson tremolo, chrome hardware, and zebra pickups.
|Last up is
this TL60, in clear gloss on flamed koa with tortoise body
binding. It has an alder body, maple neck abalone block
inlays and chrome hardware. Like the C66 above, it was
also used in a Carvin catalog.
